Teachers play a prominent role in special education due to the fact that it is critical for the development of the children. Students see teacher as an encouraging model who inspires them to achieve success. This fact is more important in the case of children having difficulties in learning. For a teacher educating students with special needs the following traits are required.
The most important skill a teacher should possess in the classroom is the ability to organize things neatly. An organized structure inside the classroom increases the confidence level of students. Using colors and labels teachers can make the learning materials easy to recognize. Along with organizing classrooms teachers should also keep the records associated with learning in an efficient manner.
Every student will be having a particular style of learning and teachers can use creative skills to bring ideas into the mind of children with special needs. The same topic can be taught in different ways to the children and making each one participate in the learning process can increase the knowledge level. Use of visual elements in a creative way also enhance the learning skill among students.
As students with special needs find it difficult to express their emotions and only a teacher with intuitive skills will be able to understand what the student wants. Due to confusion and frustration the students with special needs will behave and the teachers should be able to find out the reason for such beahvior.
